Modelling developmental changes in the carbon and nitrogen budgets of larval brachyuran crabs

  title={Modelling developmental changes in the carbon and nitrogen budgets of larval brachyuran crabs},
  author={Klaus Anger},
  journal={Helgol{\"a}nder Meeresuntersuchungen},
The uptake and partitioning of nutritional carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) were studied during the complete larval development of a brachyuran crab,Hyas araneus, reared under constant conditions in the laboratory. Biochemical and physiological data were published in a foregoing paper, and complete budgets of C and N were now constructed from these data. Regression equations describing rates of feeding (F), growth (G), respiration (R), and ammonia excretion (U) as functions of time during individual… CONTINUE READING
